Demonastery is a single-player, single-level PWAD for Doom II using a Boom-compatible source port that was released in October 2018. It was designed by Nootrac4571 and uses the music track "The Thaumaturge," composed for the level by James Paddock (Jimmy). At the 2018 Cacowards proceedings it was named one of the runners-up.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Past the blue door, approach the chainsaw for the cages around you to open. If you look towards the right, there will be a bloody wall you can use. Follow the path around until you reach the energy cells and the plasma gun. (sector 404)
  2. To get the BFG9000 in the flesh areas, you need to find three separate eye switches, each in the three key areas. In the yellow key area, get onto the flesh mound at the south end and get onto the nearest pillar, then look northeast and shoot at the eye switch. In the blue key area, head along the south wall and face westward to find the next eye switch. In the red key area, the eye switch is in the middle, between the two large flesh columns, and can be shot from the base of the north column. Once you have shot all three switches, go back to the monastery proper and to the right of the teleporter leading to the red key area is a flesh cave, where all the barriers should be removed now. Enter the teleporter to get the BFG9000. (sector 4034)
  3. At the outdoor area in the central portion of the monastery, take the southwest path and use the switch to lower the lift. Two alcoves are at the sides of this lift, enter the one on your right and press on the damaged wall to reveal a passage leading up to a soul sphere. (sector 4358)
  4. At the outdoor area in the central portion of the monastery, find the fence in the center and drop into the blood pit below. There are two skull switches here. The left one raises a lift going back up to the top, while the right one lowers the pillar with the backpack. What you need to do is hit the left switch, wait a bit, then hit the right switch and quickly take the lift back up and quickly run towards the backpack before it rises. You will be in a room with ammo and imps, and this room is the secret. (sector 4575)
